Horse Dreams


Ellie James loves horses.  She draws horses, she daydreams about horses and one day while sitting in class...there running across the school's front lawn is...a HORSE!  She is sure she saw it...  But, her friends think she is crazy.  She has prayed hard and begged her parents for a horse and maybe, just maybe THIS horse might be the horse of her daydreams.  As she gets to know this horse she begins to wonder if maybe this horse isn't an answer to her prayers?

Horse Drams - Backyard Horses by Dandi Daley Mackall is a great read for the little horse lover, perfect for boys or girls ages 5+.  One thing we really liked about this book was the fact that Ellie's little brother is deaf and they use sign language throughout the book so that we can try it too!  We had fun practicing the signs!

We can't wait to read another book by Dandi Daley Mackall.  Horse Dreams is the first in the Backyard Horses series.  The second in the series (Cowboy Colt - shown below) is also out and available.  She is also the best selling author of the Winnie the Horse Gentler series!

Disclaimer:  I received Horse Dreams free of charge from Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Thanks for the reviews. I hadn't heard of this series. I'm sure it will be enjoyed in our horse crazed house.
